Installing Mycroft may uninstall WINE without notice #2238

A user on the forums reported that by installing Mycroft, their WINE installation and all programs using WINE were uninstalled without warning. Have requested further details about the users system.

This appears to have happened at least once before on Kubuntu 16.04
In that instance it seemed that the portaudio19-dev package required libjack0 and thus uninstalled lib-jack-2-0.

Expected behaviour:

  • Able to install Mycroft without removing other software from the system.
  • If a package must be removed from the system this should provide a warning and require user confirmation with the option to abort the installation process and return the system to its previous state.

I installed mycroft today from git, and have found that wine has been removed.
Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS, mycroft stable.
No changes from the default mycroft setup.

Is there a simple way to reverse the changes mycroft has made (uninstall?)?
